Trump AG Nominee — I Don't Subscribe To This "Lock Her Up" Stuff
Blumenthal quizzed Barr about statements he has made concerning Hillary Clinton, namely that both the debunked Uranium One “scandal” and the Clinton Foundation should be investigated.
Barr clarified that he did not mean the Clinton Foundation should be investigated criminally, but as a tax matter.
He also said that he agreed with former Attorney General Mike Mukasey that putting political opponents in jail would be the behavior of a “banana republic.”
“That’s why I said… I don’t subscribe to this ‘lock her up’ stuff,” Barr told Blumenthal.
